I know you are going to love this post. Can we really bring traffic from Twitter to our websites? Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called "tweets". As of the fourth quarter of 2015, the microblogging service averaged at 305 million monthly active users. At the beginning of 2015, Twitter had surpassed 302 Monthly Active Users per quarter. Above given data might have made you clear about the possibilities of getting traffic from Twitter to your websites.

Drive Tons of Targeted Traffic to Your Websites From Twitter #1 Creating a Twitter profile (Awesome Profile) Here I am going to take an Example of an SEO user while teaching the steps. You can replace the SEO word with your own Website category or job. Process of creating a profile on Twitter: 1. Open Twitter.com website. 2. Click on Sign Up button and fill the registration form. 3. You might be asked to verify your mobile number and Email address. 4. Now you can Login your Twitter profile, update your profile picture and cover photo. Must follow Tips to keep in mind while creating a Twitter profile. You can use your real name as a display name, but do not forget to add the word SEO in your username. For example, your name is Daniel Rockz, now you can show your real name but while creating twitter username you should use terms like; danielseo rockzseo I hope you have gotten my words. On the Twitter, usernames play an important role in suggesting the people you should follow in your Industry. If there is a word SEO in your username, Twitter will show you the profiles who also deal in the same industry of SEO. That is why I suggested you to add your main keyword of job profile or website category in the username of your twitter profile. #2 Getting more followers on Twitter After creating a new profile on Twitter, our next step will be on gaining real followers. I am not going to suggest you buy Twitter followers as there are lots of websites that provide this service of twitter followers. If you do, you’ll only get the numbers and a big hole in your pocket.

Must Follow tips to get more Twitter Followers 1. Get to any of your competitor’s profile. 2. Check on his followers button. 3. And follow 50-100 of his followers. Follow this step daily. You will see that your followers have started increasing. It is a fact on Twitter if you follow someone that person might follow you back with a surety of 70%. Did not get my words? Let me explain in detail, If you follow 100 people on Twitter then from that of 100 people you might be get followed by 70. I can prove this by giving you a little task to do. What you have to is, login to your Twitter account, find out any Twitter profile having lots of followers (1000's) and given attention to the Following tab too on that people's profile. You will see, the profile owner is also following the people in 1000's. If you check in deep you will find that most of the profiles are same in both the tabs (Followers & Following). Here is the screenshot of the same type of profile I am talking about. It does not mean 100% of Twitter followers doing like same. This technique is used by those people who deal in businesses, want to increase their followers, want to generate leads and sales using their twitter profiles.

Simply by witing the name of your blog post with link do not give the traffic that we expect. Follow these steps carefully: 1. Using a Hash Tag in Your Tweets Hashtags on Twitter are considered as very important to use while writing a tweet. For those who still do not know what a hashtag is - basically, it is a word or two behind a # that makes a common discussion subject. Hashtags are a great way to spread your tweets to various topics. What type of Hashtags to use? Include hashtags with the topics about your blog. This gets your tweet seen by other Twitter users searching for the topics you’ve written about. For example, I write about SEO and blogging that is why I use hashtags like; #SEO #SEOTips #Keywordresearch #Bloggingguide #makemoneyonline and many other popular hashtags from my Industry. Look at the below image; (Tweeted that I tweeted using popular hashtags.) 2.

I already told that you are going to enjoy this post. So, by not wasting our time, we should proceed on the point. In this example, I am going to target traffic from CANADA as USA and CANADA are always considered as high paying for publishers and blog owners.

Now after knowing the trending hashtags of that specific country our next step is to include that tags in our tweets. It might be some trickiest part and you might need to make some modification while including those tending tags in your tweets. 6. Do not use the trending hashtags in a spam way. For example, If you use the trending tag #myfavoritefood in your blog post, "How to write a quality blog post", it would be considered as spam. Then how can we use the trending hashtags in our tweets, it never as exact as related with our niches? Simple, use your mind, make little modifications and use the tag. See this example, I am going to use the same tag #myfavoritefood in my technology blog post tweet. After completing a long & informative post on How to write a blog, now taking #myfavorite here is the url of my post. After writing this long post, i have left only 22 characters to add my link. Now you might be thinking now I can not add my URL in that tweet as twitter allows only the character limit of 140 Words but URL's are generally longer than 22 words. Have I said correct? Do not worry, I have a solution for this. Are you feeling tired or laziness? Let's have a cup of tea or coffee whatever you like to refresh your mind. Image by: joycekyles.com 3.

It might increase the number of clicks. Include an intriguing quote from your blog post article. Try to find a quote that’s concise and gives a flavor of the contents of your post. You might have noticed in above examples of my tweets I have used the same in tweets.
